If you read what I fucking posted, you would have read that I was only commenting on the winners of that shows.
Miz has been pretty succesfull so far, Morisson is gone, Melina is gone, Morgan is gone, King was never even in the WWE. Neither of them are huge stars. All of them are mid-carders, and will probably stay a mid-carder in WWE except The Miz, who is the only one still there.
Yes, Barrett has some succes there and can be a main eventer for years. He was the exception from TE and NXT. Ryback is doing ok now, we have to wait to see what happens, because he has just started his career. Didn't win TE though. AJ is the same story, she has just started her career. Who knows what they will be doing with her, but I would certainly not call her a succes from NXT, which she didn't won.
If you consider what TE and NXT brought to the WWE, it is not much. Maybe 3 main eventers and a bunch of mid-carders, but at least they got the rights fees from the shows though.
Um, but we're not just talking about Hulu...its available on the web by other means as well.
Did you really just say all the other countries' viewership doesn't matter?! Oh boy...lets forget about the advantages of being a MNC and that the euro is worth more than the american dollar.
You can probably substract the revenue outside North America and the WWE will survive. Substract the revenue from North America and the WWE will have to downsize considerably.
And it means absolutely nothing that the euro is more worth than the dollar.
